Past Chairman's Page
Hi and welcome to our website.
Although I've been caravanning (and camping/trailer tenting) since the age of four – a huge adventure for an inquisitive youngster to travel all the way down to Cornwall on a steam train in our own compartment, the adventure continuing in a caravan with gas lighting beside a gently meandering stream through the camp site, a place we returned to for many years to come in tents, even once on a motorbike and a trailer tent, when I was old enough eventually purchasing our own caravan, it wasn't until many trips struggling to find somewhere to camp we discovered our Club over 25 years ago, we found somewhere with great sites with spaces to camp, as much help and information as we needed and lots to do for a growing family in a large friendly family of like minded campers that we joined up and have never looked back.
I joined our Committee in 2005 as Communications Officer, compiling and printing our DA's Insite magazine, (I still have copies of all these issues, if anyone ever wants to read them) then building and maintaining our website both of which have taught me lots in both printing and compiling printed material, and then using the internet and running our website – the saying 'you never stop learning' is certainly true in this case, I'm loving running the website and yes I never stop learning.
With a great team with lots and lots of camping experience between us we're working to make sure the future has something to offer everyone, some weekends have lots of entertainment/activities, some are just 'quiet' weekends where you can put your feet up and 'do nothing but relax' so make sure you keep up to date with our website and come along and join us as often as you can, you'll be guaranteed a very warm welcome – after all we're not called the Sociable DA for nothing!!!
Hoping to welcome you out with us soon.
